can't bind commands to capital letters

Commands bound to shifted letters, such as Shift+B (push), Shift+M (unmark), and Shift+H (holder), insert a capital letter instead of running the command. As a temporary workaround I've changed my keybindings to use Meta+B, Meta+M, and g for these 3 commands. (Meta+H conflicts with "Help" in the menu bar.)

If this isn't easily fixed it would be nice to at least change the default keybindings.

Yes, I noticed that too. The patch below (I tried to attach, but got "internal track error") "fixes it for me" -- at least in command mode. The patch is against a clone of DYoo's repository on github.

The reason for replacing aug-keymap% with keymap% is that aug-keymap% does not appear to support "?:" in the first argument to the map-function "method." (for example, (keymap:canonicalize-keybinding-string "?:s:h" returns "s:h").
